A connected scatterplot is really close from a lineplot, except that each breaks in the lines are shown using a dot. It is also quite close to the scatter plot, but has a specificity: your X axis must be ordered to make this type of

representation. Thus, connected scatter plots are often used for time series where the X axis represents time. If you want to fill the area under the line you will get an area chart. If you don’t find the customization you need,

don’t hesitate to visit the scatterplot section or the line chart section that have many tips in common. Once more this section makes a focus on the ggplot2 library, visit its dedicated section for general tips!
